More businesses are becoming aware of mis-selling within their energy contracts which have seen them paying more than they need to. This has led to an increasing number of complaints made by small to medium sized businesses across the country.
Often, unbeknown to the business, where they engage with a broker to renew or change their energy contract their broker receives a commission payment from the energy company. If the commission had not been explained, then the customer may be able to claim compensation for mis-sold business energy contracts.
Energy companies are not new to scandal. They have been forced to pay out £389 million in fines and redress payments over the last decade. British Gas has been charged the most during this time, paying out £45.5million, according to analysis of Ofgem data by energy switching site, Flipper. The ‘Big Six’ are most at fault with Npower coming in next with a bill of £36million followed by Eon at £34.6million. When tallied up, energy firms have had to pay back the equivalent of £100,000 a day, every day, for the last 10 years due to non-compliance with regulations.
